Essay and Application Review: 12th Grade Students

Applications essays are among the most important parts of college applications, and with good reason, it’s your opportunity to show admissions officers why you should be admitted. Don’t leave it to chance.

 

We have read and evaluated tens of thousands of college essays and can help you craft an essay that gets noticed and helps to improve your chances as a candidate. 

We'll review your essay and provide detailed feedback, including:

  • what an admissions officer will think after reading your essay

  • content enhancements and actionable steps to make your content more compelling

  • an outline to guide your revision

  • sentence level edits to improve style and flow

We know that turnaround time is important and guarantee your essay will be returned in 3-4 days.  

Our hourly fee is $250

College List Creation with Chance of Admission: 10th, 11th and 12th

With over 5,000 colleges in the United States, it may seem overwhelming or impossible to know where to apply, which colleges are a good fit, and what your chance of admission will be. 

We can help. It's why we call ourselves "students of colleges". We are continually learning about the offerings at colleges by visiting campuses, talking with admissions officers/current students/alums, and using current admissions data to help understand the admissions landscape. 

 

We use our decades of experience in college counseling and admissions, along with the student's profile and an in-depth assessment and questionnaire, to create a tailored list of colleges that fit the student's unique needs.

 

We'll also advise you on your chance of admission at each college on your list so you're sure your final list is well balanced. 

College List Creation is $500

Early Preparation Meetings: 7th and 8th Grade Students
